ACAPULCO, Mexico — The killing of a regional political leader at a historic hotel in this Pacific resort city had investigators looking for his assassins on Monday.

Braulio Zaragoza Maganda, the National Action Party's secretary general in Guerrero state, was gunned down Sunday in the Mirador hotel, prosecutors' official Candido Joel Zamudio said.

Zamudio said several men entered the hotel restaurant where Zaragoza Maganda was eating with family. At least one of them shot the politician three times.

State Gov. Angel Aguirre Rivero condemned the killing and said authorities were investigating. No suspects were named.

The Mirador is famous for its views of daredevil cliff-diving displays that are one of Acapulco's main tourist attractions.
